Research Interests:

Human body,protective and experimental equipment design and evaluation


  • Dilen is a research associate with the Royal British Legion Centre for Blast Injuries Studies at Imperial College London.
  • He received his first degree in Mechatronics Engineering in 2009 and has a PhD in Computational Biomechanics (Gold Medal for best research).
  • Dilen's interests lie mainly in the behaviour of human joints and in the design of bespoke equipment.
  • The engineering tools he uses are primarily finite element analysis (FEA) and design (CAD).
  • During his PhD, Dilen taught FEA and CAD at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, earning him a teaching certification.
  • His current role is to support the numerous modelling and experimental projects within the centre; these projects include models of the human body (lower extremity, spine, pelvis), and protective and experimental equipment design and evaluation (blast mats, combat boot, surrogates, traumatic injury simulators).
